I buy Sleek palettes just because I always do – I missed out on Circus because I found it hard to buy…lurid. (I may still locate one of these purely for swatching reasons).
Anyway, Sleek have released two new palettes, one permanent (Bad Girl) and one Limited Edition (Good Girl)!

I popped down to Superdrug to get these – at £5.99 each they are a good price. I’ve noticed they now tape up Sleek palettes – it’s a good thing because Superdrug customers seem to have busy fingers, but also a bad thing because Sleek palettes are super soft and I’ve taken my fair share home just to find that it’s smashed to pieces.
Don’t think much of the box packaging, it’s a bit corny but I guess that’s not what we’re here for.
Bad girl reminds me immediately of Storm – it has a mixture of white, silvers, grey, purples. It’s a stereotypical bad girl I guess – I think a really bad girl would wear hot red on her eyes.
I can’t fault Sleek in terms of pigmentation and texture – I still think these are soft to the point of crumbling, but for the price, the sheer variety of shades makes it a good purchase….Swatches:
Bad girl is the kind of palette that will appeal to loads of people; I think it’s smoky, sexy, lots of fun to use and yes, recommended. There are a lot more dark colours than light, but I personally prefer this.
Good Girl palette, which is Limited Edition is somewhat disappointing. This is a pink based palette – I totally applaud Sleek for their courage in making a palette dedicated to this hue because god knows most women wouldn’t consider wearing it on their eyes.
I am totally nuts for pink at the moment. But it has to be the right tone. Sheer, pink, pretty or a hot rock chick pink.
I think the shades in the Sleek palette are hard to wear. The pinks are not quite right, there’s no super cool toned hot pink – at least not the one I am looking for, there’s red, there’s orange, there’s coral…screams tired eyes to me.
Also some of the shades are just quite similar when swatched.
On the cheeks – yeah! Totally works as a blusher palette.
Just as well that this is LE otherwise I wouldn’t have a reason to buy it.
Do you have these palettes? If not, would you indulge?
